Don't miss out-the deadline for non-profit groups to apply for BoatU.S. Foundation grant funds of up to $4,000 for projects that educate boaters about clean water issues and environmental stewardship is February 1, 2008.

While applicants are encouraged to submit proposals that strive to improve the marine environment, projects that help stop the spread of invasive species will receive extra consideration this year.

Susan Shingledecker, Environmental Program Manager for the BoatU.S. Foundation for Boating Safety and Clean Water, said, "Invasive species wreak havoc on the waterways boaters and anglers enjoy. Our grant program can help these groups educate fellow waterway users about some simple behaviors that can make a big difference, such as removing any standing water, mud and plant life from your boat at the launch ramp before you head home."

The 2007 Clean Water Grant program received over 100 proposals. Of these, 14 projects in 11 states were selected for funding. To view previous grant projects or learn more about marine debris, please visit http://www.BoatUS.com/foundation/cleanwater/grants or call Shingledecker at 703-461-2878, ext. 8358. Applications must be submitted electronically or postmarked by midnight February 1, 2008.
